In September of this year, Sam and I (and possibly Bud) will be taking part in the "Wiggle-Waggle Walkathon" to raise funds for the Ottawa Humane Society.

As you know, the OHS is the organization that brought the lovely Anna into my life, and it's partly to honour her memory that we're doing this.

So, if you'd care to sponsor us, or just read about the event, here is the link!

Thank you! :love:

I should also mention that the link has a place where you can leave encouraging messages, even if you can't donate. I promise to read all messages aloud to Sam. :cool:

:) Awww, that would be sweet. Does he tilt his head sideways when you talk to him?

The point of the python tip is not to confuse it but to entice it to start swallowing one of your legs. So when it gets to the "fork" it'll be stuck and you can kill it. Allegedly, people use this method to hunt pythons. :shrug:

I knew a girl from Ghana who said her grandfather used to hunt pythons like that. She said that one of his legs was much thinner than the other from being swallowed so often.

That would totally freak me out - to have a python swallow my leg up to my knee.

We're in Ottawa for the big day. I'm going to take Sam and Licorice, and Bud will stay home. My dad is going to distract him with a frisbe game while the three of us sneak off to the big event.

I took all three dogs for a walk this evening after it got dark. We passed a rabbit, and only Sam noticed. The old guy's still got it! :D

All right! It seems like it went well, then. :) I'm glad!

Thank you all for your generous support! We managed to raise more than my initial goal!

And, if Anna were here, she'd give you each a warm, affectionate lick on the face.

Here's Licorice and Sam enjoying the festivities:

And here's the champ resting after his mighty labours:
